2010 Pinot Noir Reserve
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
From the review: "This wine highlights heady new-oak tones of spice, vanilla and cedar, yet maintains elegance from nose to finish. Ripe black cherry and plum flavors penetrate on the palate, with a framing of soft tannins and bright cranberry acidity. The finish is long and a touch mineral."
This Pinot Noir is light red garnet in color and its distinct aromas and flavors of plum, cherry, earth, and strawberry drive this wine. Great texture and well developed tannins add structure and length to the finish. Primarily the Gamay-Beaujolais clone of Pinot blended with the Swiss Mariafeld clone. Aged in French oak barrels for 26 months (90 Points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine)
